My scalp has always been dry and flaky my entire life. At one point I had to see a dermatologist and buy perscription medication to treat it. The more potent shampoo for dry scalp that can be found at the drugstore used to work great for me, but lately for some unexplainable reason, my scalp has stopped responding to it. Enter Soak and Float! I was wary about trying another solid shampoo from Lush. I had tried a sample of one a while back and wasn’t too impressed, but I figured I would give it a go since I was at the last straw with my scalp problem.

To use a solid shampoo, all you do is wet your hair and the shampoo bar, then rub the shampoo bar across your hair 3 times (the left, right, and middle). I also like to lift my hair up and do one more under my hair. I didn’t really think doing this would produce any kind of lather, but wow was I mistaken! It lathered up more than any of my other liquid shampoos had. Now, the smell of this is not for everyone. It is described as smelling like a “campfire” but I think it smells kind of like beef jerky seasoning. I guess its a good thing I like beef jerky! I noticed that the smell doesn’t really stick to your hair for too long after the shower, especially if you cover it with other styling products like I do. Anyway…on to the results. I immediately noticed a decrease in the flakyness of my hair, but moreso I found that it was unexpectadly soft. Like…just-came-back-from-the-salon soft. I even used 2 different conditioners to make sure it wasn’t just the conditioner making it super soft and both times I got the same results. While this shampoo does certainly reduce the flakes, it doesn’t completely elliminate them altogther (which I wasn’t expecting anything to do anyway), but I’m sure with regular useage it will have a huge impact on the health of my hair! Overall, I love this and I am convinced to try more solid shampoos from Lush!

Update: I’ve noticed that after a few months of usage, the effectiveness does tend to wear off a bit. Or maybe I just have fickle hair! lol
